Meet Our Team
Monique Gilliam Avery
Based in Lexington, Kentucky, Colors of Promise (CoP) is a community-driven outreach organization that spreads the message of breast cancer awareness and risk reduction, specifically to women of color. Our focus is a movement designed to promote breast cancer awareness and education among socially disadvantaged and low-income residents living and/or working in communities in the Bluegrass area, reaching nine counties. Colors of Promise wants to educate and empower women of color to take ownership of their own health while providing support if a cancer diagnosis is determined. This entails encouraging mammography screening and providing referrals for medicine, transportation to treatment, wigs, bras, and prosthesis.
Our vision is to reach more women of color by providing life saving information, building new relationships in communities, and improving overall health and wellness.
